"Some Christmas Cards"

Good evening Blog friends, is it really Tuesday already???
Where is all the time going???  
Thank you so much for visiting me.  I feel I have not done very much Blogging lately, I just do not seem to have all the free time I used to have.  I am sorry if I have not been to visit you these past few days I do hope to catch up real soon.
Today I did the Card Class along at the Tearoom Workshop, this has been the best one so far.  There are two ladies who come, they are very nice "but"......... I always get the impression that they would rather be somewhere else!!!  However today they were actually laughing.  Elaine say`s that`s them getting used to our funny ways!!!!  Now I don`t know if she means funny Ha! Ha! or funny peculiar........LOL!!!
I don`t get much time to chat with Elaine after the classes, she has to rush off and start serving lunches in the Tearoom.  We catch up with all the gossip on a Thursday evening when she comes along.  Most of the ladies that go to the class have lunch in the Tearoom.  Elaine gets time to have passing conversations with them.  The ladies all seem to have fun, keep coming back so I suppose those two do actually enjoy being there.
Elaine and I have got our tickets for the HobbyCraft Show in Glasgow, we are going on the Thursday.   We were to give Glasgow a miss this year. we are flying down to Birmingham to the N.E.C.  Elaine wants to go to Glasgow and needed me to go with her.  It would be really rude to refuse a request like that??  We only have "Cabin Bags" for Birmingham, I know Elaine is worried about that, she just loves to buy.  It is not really bothering me, I like to go more to see what is coming onto the market.  I know you get bargains but sometimes once the shows are over you can get as good bargains on line.  Well that`s what I am telling myself and I am sticking to it

 Here are a few Christmas Cards I have done for myself.  They are basically flat and will go 2nd Class
All the cards are C6 size 
White card stock
Coloured card stock
LOTV Images from their Pads
Sentiment a very old wooden stamp I have had for ever
I have added some glitter here and there....................finished
Well that`s 9 done only about another 50 still to do.
Family and friends ones will be a bit more adventurous

By the way Oriel was delighted with her box of cards.  She said that are extra special knowing they were made just for her. 

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really apreciate each and every visit
Till next time

    Enjoy the Glasgow show! Actually I think people tend to get very carried away at these shows and it's rather difficult to sort out whether you really have got a bargain or not! What days will you be attending the NEC?

  20. Hi Patricia
    These cards look terrific. My word, who do you send 59 cards to that aren't friends and family? Have you got some of these new shares in Royal Mail lol?
    Make sure you wear clothes with deep pockets when you come as you can fit extra bits in them rather than in your hand luggage.Having flown Ryanair several times, you learn these little tricks to avoid extra charges.
